One of my goals in the New Year was to take one day a week and book that day completely off. The idea was to give me a day to plan lunch with friends, book appointments, dedicate to schoolwork if needed, or even take a day to do absolutely nothing. Since I made the move in August my schedule has been a bit uncertain and hectic as I was getting my work schedule the week before actually working. I found that booking appointments and planning dates with friends was getting tricky. With school, my internship and working, I decided to dedicate Thursdays to be my “me” day each week.
This particular Thursday I took advantage of a sunny afternoon to take some photos and meet two girlfriends for lunch. I had been raving about this amazing Lebanese restaurant in Gastown called Nuba, so I was excited to take them there and indulge in some authetic food.
Sweater – MINK PINK (similar cardigans here)
I love the colours in this sweater. They really contrast each other and I always get complimented on this sweater when I wear it.
Jeans – J Brand (similar here)
The wash in these jeans is perfect for a casual mid-week lunch date. With signs of Spring showing everyday, I like seeing the transition from dark wash denim to lighter washes of denim around the city.
Shoes – White Converse (short) (see here)
I bought these last summer and have never looked back! My white Converse are a major staple in my closet right now.
Top – Topshop T-shirt (see here)
The shirt is simple and very versatile. I love that I can wear it with jeans, a skirt, or shorts and it seems to go just perfectly on it’s own or even under a cardigan or jacket.
Purse – Matt & Nat (see here)
About a year ago I went on the hunt for the perfect backpack purse. I found this one in a store back home and it really has been a great investment.
Hope you are all off to an excellent start of the week! Do you have any particular habits that you use to dedicate time to yourself? I’m always interested in new ideas!
